Felt like a savory breakfast today so I whipped up some tuna avocado toast🥑 Really easy to make before work too! Cause let’s be honest, I’m all about those quick meals 😅 I used a can of tuna in water and added some chia and hemp seeds on top!

Showing off that cute sports bra to y'all 😎👌🏻 Naaah, just kidding.
Came to do a little check-in:
#PWR Week 5
✅Chest&Triceps
✅10min HIIT (40x20) with 2 exercises:
Skipping & Burpees
Daaam, it was a nice one. Little did I know thst burpees with push-ups after chest day isn't a good idea. Face: "Hello floor 💁🏼‍♀️"

💯 ARMS ON THE REFORMER❗️ ⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
GREAT FOR: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🔹 core activation
🔹toned abs/core
🔹postural alignment
🔹pelvic floor activation
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
USEFUL TIPS/HINTS:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🔹 If your lower back is aching/sore throughout, place a wedge under your bottom or bring your knees closer to your body ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🔹 make sure to tuck your pelvis under, ensuring you have each vertebrae flat on the reformer (no arching) - this will help activate your core quicker
🔹 the lower the resistance/spring the more core activation!!
🔹 be sure to control the movement, keeping tension on the straps at all times. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ •

Hey guys sorry it’s been so long without a post I’ve not been doing too great I hope you understand. Anyway I had therapy today and it was very emotional talking about low moods and the dangers my body is under. We also talked about the importance of body image and I realised just how much this disorder consumes my life and how I cannot spend an hour even without thinking of my body and my weight. It’s upsetting to realise and me and my therapist have made a goal for this to be reduced significantly. I’m really feeling low lately but I hope it’s just my period so will be gone soon. I’m going to try and not binge and purge tomorrow to break the cycle. Remember that recovery isn’t linear and all your feelings are valid. Love you all so much 💖

Hellooooo Monday!👋🏻

Let's talk about INSECURITIES and DOUBTS!😬I had Total Body Core this morning and it was all about the abs! I was blessed by my mom with big hips🙏🏻but I also was given a crazy short torso compared to the length of my legs😂It may be silly, but I have always been worried about how abs will look on my oddly proportioned body. 🙈🙊So much of social media shows fitness queens that have smaller hips! What do you worry about on this journey?? What holds you back?

You know what I say to all of those fears? I say screw it! Strong is beautiful!!💕Pushing yourself to become stronger physically makes you better mentally! This life is about you and how you feel! Don't worry about anyone else❤️️😘

Day 15/80✅Go get it today 💪🏻

Life update on why I’ve been MIA: this weekend I just received my bachelors degree in Dietetics 🎓 (#rd2be) Dead week, finals, and all the celebrating had me distracted but now that it’s officially summer, I’m back and better than ever!
This morning to kick it all off I had avocado toast with toasted coconut and greens on top 😋

Long post alert

I did it!!! I finished 80 Day Obsession this morning amid the chaos of getting ready for our trip.

There was ZERO chance I wasn't going to get it done today!

Guys!!! This has been the most amazing fitness program I have EVER done. And I was an absolute emotional wreck during the last few reps. Literally, tears streaming down my face 😭

You may find that ridiculous but the way this program was filmed in real time, you got to know each of the cast members. You watched their transformations. You saw them get stronger with you! And when you put so much of yourself, physically & mentally, into something for 80 days and it ends...I promise you will be feeling all the emotions too! It's like when your favorite tv show ends for the season 😂
Not only that but what I was able to accomplish in 80 Days has got me so thankful I chose this program.
I lost 1 lb!!! You're probably thinking that isn't anything to brag about and I'm not...I was actually eating in maintenance so I wouldn't lose weight. I don't need to! What I did was drop body fat WHILE replacing with lean muscle 💪 and holy hell am I strong AF now!
I have never had my upper abs pop like this! And don't even get me started on my butt 😂 I have never loved my butt and now I can't stop checking it out in the mirror! I'm so excited to rock my bikini on vacation 👙 My back and shoulders actually have muscle definition!
Gosh, I am so PROUD of my body and what I put it through! I pushed myself harder than ever before and it really proves that your BODY is capable of what your MIND tells it to do!

Our minds will give up far faster than our bodies will✌ Push through when it is tough. Be mentally strong and you will reap the rewards!
This program has CHANGED my LIFE ❤ but onto the next one! Always progressing!!! Who wants to start changing theirs?!

Interesting to see how much I have changed over the last few years - up until around the age of 49 I looked like the first pic. I then lost a little weight through HIIT but with arthritis it was tough and I was still a size 14. The centre pic is one year into lifting weights and days after my 51st birthday. The final pic is from a few weeks ago at age 53 and my favourite! Lifting has definitely transformed my life not just my body, more energy, no arthritis meds, better mobility, less stress, better sleep as well as making a whole load of new friends 💪💪 What’s not to like? #transformationtuesday #transformation #fitness #lifting #powerlifting #womenwholift #fatloss #arthritis #strength #muscle #strongnotskinny #juststrong

Busy day but I popped our tea in the oven, set the timer for 30 minutes & just went for it! Pure Hiit, no weights, no rowing machine just me & my body squating, lunging, jumping, kicking, crunching, etc etc oh and sweating...lots & lots of sweating! Look at the hair on me😂😂
Love it!!!!! #Hiit #exercise #bodymagic #burningcalories #burningfat #swinsta #slimmingworld #swuk #weightloss #healthyliving #slimmingworlduk #fatburning #strongnotskinny #fitness

January 2017 ➡️ Now, June 2018

Never posted one of these before as some may say I've not changed that much. But to me I feel it's mental as well as a physical change!

The gym has been my place to get a break from all the difficult things in my life. If your like me with a crazy metabolism and no appetite you'll find it hard to gain weight and muscle mass, I had to slowly increase my food to try and grow my appetite, at first I just wanted to give up because it wasn't working, but I had people around me supporting me and I kept at it and now I have a healthy balance with food😄

Happy Saturday! Gloomy weekends call for yummy salads! This chicken cranberry almond salad was amazing! Of course it was super filling with good variety of fats, carbs and protein. Plus it is loaded with micronutrients 🥗

#transformationtuesday LONG POST but worth the read. ❤️ The top picture was taken in 2012 when I first attempted a deadlift with just the bar. MAN I thought I was a BEAST. 🦁 .
.
I looked at the date on the first picture and it was about 2 months before I found out I had a tumor growing within my abdominal cavity that was so large it was crushing a number of my vital organs. 😔 Thankfully, the tumor was resected with only injury to my inferior vena cava that they were able to repair. I was diagnosed with a very rare disorder called Castleman’s disease where lymph nodes mutate. I was also cured from the disease and I’m left with an 8 inch scar going down the middle of my abdomen. .
.
I was healthy. I taught Zumba for 6 years while this tumor grew and I had no idea. The doctor said the reason I bounced back so quickly after the surgery was because of how physically active I was. .
.
My POINT? You NEVER know what can happen in life so GIVE it your ALL now. 👈🏻 And this: Stop beating yourself up for the little things. Love who you are and never stop improving in every area of your life. ▫️ Almost 6 years since my surgery and I have to remind myself of it when I’m doubting my capabilities because I SURVIVED. 🙏🏻 God kept me around so I better take care of my body and not take it for-granted. 🙌🏻 .
